Male transformation- Cooper Podowicz

Congratulations to our 2020 Fall 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge Male 4th place $3,000 cash prize winner Cooper Podowicz @cooper_podowicz

This is his story

“ I came across this 1UP Transformation challenge while scrolling through Instagram one night. I decided joined the Facebook page to see a lot of motivation and support. It was only positive so I had to join. I have never really been a part of an online group like that. I was basketball player in high school. After a car accident my junior year and playing with cortisone shots in my knees all through senior year, I turned down the opportunity to play in college. It was so hard but I knew deep down I wasn’t done being an athlete. In 2015 I ruptured my patellar tendon by hyperextending it and after 3 bad surgeries in 2 years I went to someone else and had a 4th. After a year of physical therapy, I grew a real passion for progress as well as fitness. I then got into a job working 60 hours a week for 2 years and was lucky to get to the gym once a week. My fitness was on the back burner. When this challenge came along I thought, “why not me?” I have too much drive in me and the gym is where I can express myself as an athlete. It was definitely tough but I enjoyed it at the same time. During the 8 weeks I learned that not everyone will support you in your journey. But it is YOUR journey so who cares? Do it for you. I questioned it a few times but stuck to the plan and was better for it in the end. Just keep going, changes will happen. I am grateful to be a part of this challenge and can’t wait for another 8 weeks!”
